Why Quitting is Not an Option

You’ve all heard me say, “Never give up,” and talk about how experiencing failure is a part of success — but recently, a question dawned on me: what does it even mean to “quit” in life? What would it mean to quit on success completely? Is that even feasible? Isn’t there always at least a desire to want to be happy and succeed? And if quitting is not an option, what else are you going to do when you feel you’ve exhausted many of your routes?

In this episode I discuss the several camps of people who want to get better and what stops them from succeeding; my own journey and how I’ve gotten to this point; coming to terms with how quitting is not an option; where you should look after deciding that quitting is not an option; how you, as a practitioner, can help those with addictions through creating a roadmap of many different routes, techniques, and tools for recovery; and much more.
